The final exam will be Monday, December 8, 2014 from 2:00PM to 4:30PM in our usual room (MDD 207).  No-one will be excused from the final exam, and the final exam will count as 25% of the grade.  However,  under no circumstances will I award more than one letter grade lower than the grade excluding the final exam, and, if you make above 90% on the final exam, I will award an "A" in the course.

Furthermore, I will not count off for late homework, so if you haven't finished certain homework assignments, you may do so now without penalty.  (Recall that homework counts 25% of your grade.)

The exam will have problems as follows:

  1. A word problem involving optimization (from section 15.2 of   the text).
  2. A problem involving evaluating a double integral by reversing the order of integration.
  3. A problem involving setting up and evaluating a triple integral using rectangular, cylindrical, or spherical coordinates.
  4. Writing down parametric equations for a curve, given a description of the curve and its orientation.
  5. Computing the time at which a particle hits a surface, and computing the speed at which it hits.
  6. Computing the flux through a surface (possibly using the divergence theorem).
  7. Computing the circulation of a vector field around a closed curve (possibly using Stokes' theorem).
